Speed of an Outbreak?


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, 

Bit upset this morning, I have been outbreak free for about 2-3 weeks now, and just starting to feel better about my appearance again and not having to wrap my penis in tissue to stop fluid leaking from blisters, and then BOOM, another outbreak (this time twice as big). 

Im starting my suppression course of Aciclovir again as I really cant deal with the constant outbreaks ive had over the last 3 months.

My main question: Is anyone else astounded by the speed in which outbreaks occur? I went swimming last night and checked my penis at 9:00pm, then at 9:00am the next day i am covered in large blisters. Its making me think swimming is perhaps a trigger? But im not entirely sure.

I don't get blisters, but just a suggestion....Get some Lemon Balm ointment and put it all over the areas where you break out. It's supposed to help prevent and it's working well for my redness:) I put it on two or three times daily.

Yep, those bastards come thick and fast. I get them on the inside of my foreskin, so I almost always discover them in the shower and yeah, it's always a shattering experience.

      Hi guys, My name is Shelly. I'm 25 years old! I've had Herpes for 5 going on 6 years now. I'm just here hoping to learn more ways to deal with the situation and meet new people who actually know what I'm going through!  Thank you for reading! 💕

      Hey @Zrozpaczona9 that looks like folliculitis to me, that’s independent of the question of herpes. The doctor is wrong in the sense that a negative IgG test is beyond reasonable doubt that you do not have herpes. It is a small percentage of people for which a false negative occurs. The doctor is right to take a swab to increase your confidence that there’s no herpes present. I’m sure you’ll have your result soon.

      Hey @WilsoInAus miałam dzisiaj wizytę u dermatologa, gdyż dostałam zmian w pachwinie, w trakcie wakacji nad morzem. Udałam sie tam ze zmianami w postaci strupów. Powiedział ze nie można wykluczyć opryszczki mimo negatywnego wyniku Hsv igg i zalecił wymaz z pochwy na Hsv i inne choroby. Wytłumaczyłam mu że zmiany zamieniają się w strup, ale nie ma w nich płynu, więc zalecił badanie śluzu pochwy na hsv PCR, zastanawiam się czy ma to sens, i czy wirusa można wykryć na podstawie tego badania w wydzielin z szyjki macicy. Z góry dziekuje za pomoc

      In this forum we will discuss does lume work Lume is paraben-free and uses several natural ingredients like Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, tapioca starch, and Maranta arundinacea root powder (also known as arrowroot powder) to control odor and sweat. One of the key Lume deodorant ingredients is mandelic acid, an AHA found in skin care products, which also has an antibacterial effect.

      Ibuprofen medicine is a painkiller. Can you take ibuprofen on an empty stomach  Some people take medicine empty stomach which is not good for our health. Because painkiller kind of medicine is very strong and can harm your liver. Medicine makes many strong ingredients. like Lactose, corn starch, hypromellose, sodium starch glycolate, colloidal anhydrous silica, magnesium stearate, sucrose, talc, titanium dioxide (E171), and carnauba wax.
